can not remove numerous ESET drivers from Win10

Recommended Posts

Have removed ESET Internet Security long time ago. But these files still exist and can not be removed without crashing the system:


Removal makes the system inoperabel.
They are all located at C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\*.sys

avremover does not find it. How to get rid of them?
Help would be very appreciated.

1, Drivers are uninstalled / removed during standard uninstallation.
2, If uninstallation is failing, you can run the ESET Uninstall tool in safe mode: https://support.eset.com/kb2289/

Drivers should not be removed manually since some require a proper unregistration from the registry, otherwise you may not be able to  boot in safe mode either (typically edevmon.sys).

Thanks Marcos,

that finally worked. Although I tried it in the past this time it worked well.
